brought them directly to capitol hill to have meetings with their elected officials. we've been in the white house with meetings. you know, i think even just seeing now that the vice president is going to virginia and holding a roundtable, you know, shows that the administration understands that really the missing piece to this is the american public outrage and engagement, that we have to match what's been so prevalent on the other side for so long. we've begun to see that. it's been incredible. everyone is watching. let's keep this up because we can get this done. >> i want to introduce to america ben smith. >> we stopped any the hallway. joy, first, in terms of this moment in time, i mean, i think there was a sense of collective pessimism about whether anything would happen, but given the fact that this -- a, the conversation continues. >> right. >> we are still on this television show, and many other television shows, talking about where this stuff is going. the nra seems to be relying on their sort of tyranny of the top, elitist gun grabbers. i am not sure that this time it is

republican party, everybody's been saying after the election, maybe they can get it together, circle the wagons, come up with a new position, new policies. >> this gives them more time to work on this. i don't have any ideas for them on that, i got to tell you. good luck. >> luke, how much -- i mean, we played that sound from rush limbaugh, rush limbaugh is the mayor of planet crazy, but at the same time, he does speak for -- you know this, house caucus, there are people, yesterday mo brooks plans to oppose this, he has a serious problem on his hands. to what degree are they going to be placated or feel they need to put party or country before primary? >> that doesn't apply to these folks. we say to the term "chuckle heads" sort of in a joking manner, but that's what they are referred to now. this apocalyptic group, which will not move forward on anything, and because the margins are smaller now, you see that in the house of representatives. what i find fascinating is the democrats' ability to hold their members and say, look, let's try and splinter the house gop. let's try and make them

boehner's -- >> mcconnell is up for re-election. so is lindsey graham who is a part of this group. the longer this hangs out there and the harder lindsey gram gets hit. we haven't seen that yet, are the people up in 2014 going to get hit on this. >> i think there potentially is a better chance. bill, you remember this from 2005 and 2006. those are basically talking points that we wrote. we didn't have to be told not to say illegals. you have to be told not to say some of those things. some of the friendlier language. it's interesting to see a couple of things. number one, senator rubio, everybody is mentioning him in their statements. that's clearly their tea party cover. they're, like, look, senator rubio is for it. it's got to be okay. >> there's one fact that will come into play. it's the business community. john boehner that we've seen on the depault and other issues is now caught between his tea party, you know, majority and the business community that funds the republican party, and that they're amenable to it. >> there's a demographic reality to it. >> putting that aside --

2008 a president was elected with the hope of finding common ground in a charged partisan political climate. >> kevin mccarthy told the top political leaders, we have to challenge them on every single bill. a pledge to obstruct that would define the gop for the next four years. >> four years later budget chair and failed vice presidentialal candidate paul ryan isn't quite what to say about it, but he isn't extend aing bouquet of olive branches. >> when we see an opening, however small we should take it, if we want to promote conservativism, we'll need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we will have to reject the president's proposals. that time might come more than once. sometimes we'll have to make them better. >> jonathan martin writes today in politico top gop officials are calling for a more strategic mix of opposition and accommodation. exactly where that accommodation exists remains a mystery. for every suggestion of compromise, there is a doubling down on principle. that, i believe, is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> as president obama told the new republic

last three months, the dow has been up 600 points since election day, and we have seen a very tumultous time in terms of talking about the u.s. economy and certain folks wanting to perhaps hold it hostage. what is that -- what is that counter indication? what does that mean? >>. >> here's the good news. the good news is i think a lot of executives now have decided that they're actually just going to have to live with fiscal cliffs. we're going to have a series of them, and that this is the new normal, as you would say, and that they're just -- it's like the weather. now maybe it's raining, maybe it's not, but we'll have to live with, it and to the extent there's more confidence, i think it's sort of -- there's been a come to jesus moment that this is sort of how it's going to be. whether that's the right thing or wrong thing, i don't know. also, that there seems to be a lot more support here in europe for the economy and a sense that things are actually getting better, a sense that maybe austerity doesn't work, which is a real shift, and, by the way, is a real shift in terms o

being a triptic, which was the election night speech and the inaugural speech, and now we have the state of the union. what do we expect from that in terms of how aor specific on the policy that he gestured towards yesterday. >> i think he has to keep up this pressure going forward, and i think the real question i think we'll be looking for tea leaves in the state of the union address to what extent does he want to keep these as issues and continue building momentum. he believes coming out of the 2012 election that there is an emerging majority that will only get stronger going forward, and he talked to the white house. they talk about what they can get done in the next two years. the next four years. our work will not be done here. >> the work begins anew. >> the work will continue after me. so on an issue like global warming, there is not some big legislative package coming this year on global warming. they don't even have democratic votes for that. what obama is doing is seeding the ground, beginning the discussion to kind of shift the popular perception of global warming, and t
